ACRL logo

The ACRL Board of Directors is aware that ALA Midwinter attendees have reported experiencing violations of the conference Code of Conduct, including incidents of racism, harassment, and discrimination. We laud the strength of those who have shared their experiences to draw needed attention to violations, and we abhor the systemic inequities in our profession that have normalized discriminatory, harassing, and racist behaviors. As part of our commitment, we have arranged anti-bias training for leaders and trainers within ACRL and funded additional Spectrum Scholarships for colleagues of color to join and thrive in the profession.
